Absence In the matter of absence from official duties, the Council of Basle ordered that a certain part of the fruits of the Church should be given only to those canons who reside. The Council of Trent permits canons to be absent three months in each year without incurring the penalty of absence. Bishops are supposed always to have a lawful cause for absence, and have the privilege of taking with them two dignitaries or canons, who shall not be liable to the penalties of absence.
